Tattoo Sketch

I hate to ask this of anybody, but if anyone wants to challenge themselves I do have a request. I have tried numerous times to bring my idea to life, but I'm simply not talented enough :[

I'm planning on getting a tattoo on my forearm that is a tad intricate, and I would like to have a base sketch to bring to the tattoo artist so they have an idea of what I'm looking for. So here goes.

I would like thin black like for everything with thin lines of color kinda threading through over the black.

The central piece of the tattoo would be a tree (the tree of life). I want it to be slender and branchy (that is absolutely a word). Sorta like this....

Except straighter and with less roots (roots should be cutoff as if they went underground) and obviously the little bit of color.

Around the tree I want a horse shoe wrapped tilting to the left. The horse shoe should be slightly smaller than the tree but still large.

At the base of the tree I want a cat and a dog facing the tree sitting next to each other with foot prints sort of wrapping around the base leading up to where they're sitting. No color for the cat and dog.

That's all :] I really don't expect anyone to draw this, but if you feel like giving it a shot I would really appreciate it!!!

I think I know a website where you can pay people to draw you stuff. If you look and ask around I'm pretty sure someone will help you out.
